Anniversary

Thursday we celebrated our 35th anniversary by going to the opening Seattle Seahawks football game.  Don't feel sorry for me--it was my idea! My dad was a radio sports announcer & I grew up going to games practically from the time I could walk.  Here we are heading out in a rental car--one time coming back to our car broken into is enough! The weather was perfect--didn't even need my sweatshirt walking the 5 miles back to the car--OK, maybe it wasn't quite 5 miles--LOL!  The lady sitting behind me took a picture just before the game started & we were still smiling at the end as the Seahawks won! Thought it'd be fun to have a memento of our day sitting on the coffee table along with the cards we gave each other.  I backed the brown cardstock with recycled cardboard & glued on a simple cardboard support stand.  I began with the sketch at MFT & will enter the challenge, although I'm not sure if I stretched it too much or if you have to make a card.  Anyway, I made a stencil using MFT leaves dies & added Zing embossing powders to the paste.  The panel was spritzed with Heidi Swapp Bronzer & Tattered Angels Cork mist which provide a lovely shimmer in real life.  All the stamps are MFT & I used stickers for the numbers.  The kraft panel was also spritzed with the TA after stamping the hearts & the photo mat was spritzed with the bronzer.  
Darnell has another NBUS (new stuff) challenge & the mist & I Love You stamp hadn't been used until now. Scraps were used, so I'm also entering at Pixies Snippets Playground--not playing for the prize.  It's not a card, so I'll enter the new mixed media challenge at The Mirror Crack'd where my good friend, Sue, is on the DT. I'll also enter the Curtain Call Lovely Leaves challenge. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    And what a great page it is too, I knew you could do it........the lovelyphoto sits so well amongst the textured panel of leaves, Thank you so much for supporting the first Challenge at ' The Mirror Crack'd' It maybe a different Challenge blog but it offers creators who want to extend themselves the opportunity to do so.

  3. What a fantastic way to remember your anniversary (happy belated, btw). I'm sure this piece will fit well wherever you display it. Your leaves and note of love frame your photo so well.

    Nice that you are a football fan. I don't have a favorite team, so maybe I'll root for Seattle in your honor. That smile on your face will be on mine when basketball season rolls round (grin).

  31. Your 'layout' is charming, with the lovely fall colours and images, but the best part, by far, is that FABULOUS photo of you and your husband! What a wonderful keepsake of a milestone anniversary! Mega watt smile all over my face in seeing this! And belated though it may be, wishing you a most HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, and a year filled with blessings galore!
